Föreläsning om framtidens internet
Professor S. Felix Wu från University of California Davis gav den 28 maj ett underhållande och intressant seminarium om hur framtidens internet kan komma att fungera.
Han menade att de sociala nätverken som poppat upp som rakter på stjärnhimlen kommer spela en mycket större och mer betydelsefull roll framöver. Inte bara som ett sätt att skapa och underhålla relationer utan bland annat i syfte att öka internet-trafikens säkerhet.

"Relationship-Oriented Social-Centric Future Internet Design".
Online Social Networks (OSNs) such as Facebook are growing rapidly. On the one hand, OSNs are invaluable in supporting communication for our Internet-based community. On the other hand, the weakness of the design of OSNs could make it lose its value. This talk will address how to leverage OSN infrastructure to solve security problems and how to protect the value of OSNs such that we might not introduce new security problems.
Professor Wu will discuss the rationale and design principles behind Davis Social Links (DSL), a FIND (Future INternet Design) and GENI (Globel Environment for Network Innovation) project sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Under the consideration of re-designing the Internet, professor Wu will argue that network-layer unique identifiers and global connectivity by default, both being the fundamental design principles for our current Internet, might be both unnecessary and harmful.
Biography of the speaker:
Prof. S. Felix Wu has been doing experimental system research, i.e., building prototype systems to justify and validate novel architectural concepts. Since 1995, he and his students/postdocs have built many experimental systems in the areas of fault tolerant network, IPSec/VPN security policy, attack source tracing, wireless network security, intrusion detection and response, and online social network systems. His research has made real impacts to the Internet community. As an example, in 1996, his research team discovered and announced a critical flaw on most commercial OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) routers. In 2000, when DDoS (Distributed Denial of Services) attacks disabled many commercial web sites, his IPSec-based DECIDUOUS (DECentralized IDentification of intrUsion sOUrceS) system brought several attentions by demonstrating its capability to partition DDoS attack flows.
His most recent works are (1) developing new virtual machine technologies to enhance system security, and (2) leveraging online social network as the key to re-design the Internet architecture (the DSL project: Davis Social Links). The latter is currently being supported by NSF/FIND, NSF/BBN/GENI, US. Army/ARO MURI, and the newly awarded ARL's Network Science CTA. Professor Wu received his BS from Tunghai University, Taiwan, in 1985, and a PhD from Columbia University in 1995, all in Computer Science. He currently has 100+ conference and journal publications.
